After the success of Made in Paris, the Museu Carmen Thyssen Andorra presents its seventh exhibition!
The Museu Carmen Thyssen Andorra unveiled yesterday, Monday 16th January, the results of the sixth exhibition Made in Paris. The Generation of Matisse, Lagar and Foujita, which closed its doors for good on Sunday 8 January 2023. Pep Farràs, the manager of the Museand Foundation, announced that this sixth exhibition was a great success, with a total of 15,008 visitors, including 7,167 Andorrans, a figure that proves that the difficult period of the pandemic is behind us.
In addition, Teresa Areny, project manager of the Museu Carmen Thyssen Andorra, stressed the importance of the museum’s commitment to accessibility to culture for all. This is achieved not only through the activities and workshops offered to the public, but also through the social and interdisciplinary collaborations carried out with institutions and organisations in the Principality and elsewhere. This year, the museum has a total of 387 activities for all audiences.
With this desire to go one step further each time, Guillermo Cervera, General Curator of the Carmen Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection and curator of the Museu Carmen Thyssen Andorra, announced the title of his new exhibition KHRÔMA. The Emotional Universe of Colour, which aims to explore the importance of each nuance and how its perception can vary from one person to another.
Colours are historically associated with emotional states and concrete situations. Beyond the purely artistic aspect, KHRÔMA focuses on the study of sensations and invites each visitor to become the key element of the emotional message that will be transmitted throughout the visit.
This chromatic adventure, which illustrates 34 works by 35 artists ranging from the 19th century to pop and contemporary art, is structured into six colour groups, each of which recreates a monochromatic story, leading to an overall polychromy that embodies the links between all the works presented. This year, the public will be able to admire, among the range of blues, one of the works of the famous Russian painter Wassily Kandinsky and, alongside him, many other artists from around the world.
The exhibition will be on display on the ground floor of the old Valira hostel from 10 February 2023 to 7 January 2024.
